Hello! I have the original KF and I love it. Never had a problem with it all this time, but I have noticed the charger is getting hot when it's charging and I thought no problem, Kindle HDX is here! Then I read the 82 one star reviews and am convinced the blue outline thing would drive me crazy. I returned a Paperwhite because I could not stand the blank black screen that flashed between page turns, so I'm pretty sure that's that.
Then I read up on KF HD's and found a bunch of one star reviews that it doesn't have the features the first one did - camera, port, etc.
But Amazon has the original HD with that stuff selling refurbished with a one year warranty. So if you have had both, which would you chose? A lot of people were unhappy with the loss of features, but "refurbished" kind of screams problems to me?
It's that or the HDX 8" which does not -from what I am reading - have the blue glow but will cost several hundred more.
I don't do movies, rarely do the web or Youtube - the Kindle to me is a "book." So that's what I want -
the closest replacement product to what I have that I can get. And one of the things I really love is the brown text on a sepia background option in fonts. Do any/or all of the newere ones have this? I couldn't find it listed.
Thanks so much for advice...
and happy reading!
